As one travels down the west coast, the beaches get shorter and are more cove -like, which adds character and gives a feeling of having your own private beach. The mountains are higher as you go further south providing truly spectacular views from the hilly road and beaches. The ocean views are also stunning from high vantage points. Kan Tiang bay is the largest of these coves. Home of the the 5 star Pimilai Hotel, there are also bungalows here to suit any budget. The resorts are along the beach and on the hillsides both on the road side of the beach and the northern end of the beach. A successful attempt has been made to control development here, and all of the resorts blend into the landscape very well. While this beach and those to the south are more beautiful than the northern ones, they are more isolated, so the choice of things to do at night is less, although at Kan Tiang, there is still plenty to do.
